Pull out that dipstick and take a good look at that engine oil. If it looks far from clean and clear, plus you may have also reached its mileage limit, change your engine oil before you place the car in storage.
Wash and clean your car
It's always a good idea to give your car a good clean, inside and out, before parking up your car for the winte. It will reduce the amount of contaminents on the vehicle and avoid any deterioration of paintwork during the storage period.
Pump up your tyres
Inflate your tires to the maximum PSI rating to the tires from developing flat spots. Don't worry about removing modern radial tires.
You can leave the car in neutral with the parking brake disengaged or, if you have an automatic car, you can leave it in park.
